first_imgQuique Setién is an old fox and knows better than anyone that the best way to lower his guard to his players and lower the level of adrenaline in the group is to surprise them. Hence, after making a brief speech before starting the training, he proposed a game to his pupils. It was that he would throw the ball pronouncing the name of the player to whom he was going to be the recipient and the aforementioned had to take the ball with his hands. If I didn’t get it, then I lost.The surprise was capital among the template, which at first they took it a little bit of fun. But seeing the vehemence with which Setién was employed at the time of throwing the ball, little by little the whole group entered the game. You could even see a Leo Messi laughing out loud at the insistence of the coach in his throws.In the end, everyone entered the game and a fun and original training start could be seen. Especially Samuel Umtiti entered the bag when returning the ball to the coach, making all kinds of antics. There is no doubt that with initiatives of this type, Setién is trying to deactivate the alert state in which its workforce is submerged since the technical secretary, Eric Abidal, will designate the entire group as responsible in part for the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde and accuse them of “working little” in training. In fact, during his time at Betis it was usual to see him play games with his soccer players, and with Captain Joaquin as an authentic master of ceremonies.Also, the subsidiary defender, Dani Morer, had to go through the process of the corridor of the colleges to turn 22 today. The truth is that it came out rather airy because the elders were very benevolent with the canterano.last_img
